Powers Signature Release
Tyler,
Honey and floral on the nose, with a cereal grain sweetness. Bread and astringent notes of bright fruit on the palate with a surprisingly dry finish and medium burn. Certainly a tasty irish dram, even if it doesn't stand out in any particular way.

Very smooth and enjoyable

Jay,
Had it in Ireland at the recommendation of a young bartender. I found it weak and watery.

Great whiskey

Brian,
Very smooth, very nice. One of my favorite Irish whiskeys.

brad,
Excellent. I’d put this against green spot which is my other favorite Irish. Fruit notes on the palate. Very mild and drinkable, but also interesting enough. A very solid 9, if taking price into consideration.

Brooke,
Delish if you like a rich, smooth, sweeter whisky. This is the equivalent of the jammy Napa Zin in the wine world, but even better 'cause it's whisky! Slightly strong in alcohol, but the flavors are equally pronounced, so everything balances beautifully. The toffee and chocolate come through, along with some warm holiday spices (allspice, cinnamon, clove), oak and vanilla. Damn good drinking just neat.

Andy,
Affordable classic Irish.

Eamon,
Favourite whisky right now. Loved the more mellow Irish whiskeys like Redbreast but once you try this it’s hard to go back. Probably to overpowering / spicy if your not use to whiskey but you broken your whiskey palate this is a must

ROGER,
A nice any day sipper. No harsh or overpowering notes.

Loved it. Richer flavor than regular Powers

Dimitri,
Complex flavor profile. Strong honey notes.

Daniel,
Bit of a harsh alcohol bite that overpowers the little bit of fruit and sweet present. Spice is powerful as well. On ice it is much better! Smooth chocolate, oak and coffee come through with no harshness. Smooth and velvety!

Andrew,
A model Irish whiskey- strong on vanilla, fruit and spice. The finish is long and smooth. I appreciated the complexity and depth in the finish

Incredibly smooth Irish whiskey.

Jeffrey,
This Irish whiskey noses very much like a Bourbon (which I like) with pleasant aromas of oak and warmth. When it hits the palate is where you notice the difference! John's Lane is brighter with notes of fresh fruit and spice that mellow out a bit in the finish but still maintains a little heat. It doesn't have that strong smoke that turns me off from many Irish or Scottish whiskeys, which is great. If I had to switch from Bourbon to an Irish whiskey, this would be a top choice!

Nubia,
Love the earthy warm notes. Has become one of my home Staples. Extremely reasonably priced for so much flavor.

Ken,
Great mixer!

Dorsey,
Not my cup of tea, there's an overpowering taste of something in there.

Declan,
Decent but with quite a bit of heat on the palate. Plenty on the nose, Apple and coffee. Creamy palate but a touch too much heat for me.

Matthew,
Appearance: Color is amber, decent legs... Nose: Crisp clean apple, vanilla, mild malty notes. Very clean... Palate: Warm vanilla front, creamy in nature, followed quickly by a dark chocolate, almost coffee like note. Creep of some baking spice towards the end. Not what the nose tells you is coming, but also not at all disappointing... Mouthfeel: Thick and oily, coats the tongue... Finish: Drying, almost like drinking black coffee, while the dark chocolate lingers... Overall: A very different style of Single Pot Still than the usual suspects, but also so good because of it.

Karissa,
Love this!!!! My new favorite.

Robert,
Smooth but off-putting banana scent

Ken,
Excellent mixer!
Powers Gold Label
Sergio,
You could smell the cinnamon and the light honey. It does have a spice that lingers but not too strong. It is a every day drink. Nothing special. Better than over the counter stuff. I would buy again.

Michael,
Smoother than Jameson, definitely in my top 5 for starter Irish Whiskeys.
Powers 12 Year Old John's Lane Release
Bill,
Very smooth whiskey with a great finish. Goes down easy
Powers 12 Year Old John's Lane Release
Lars,
Smooth, warm but also strong. Hints of spice, maybe anise, or even licorice. I liked this one.
Powers 12 Year Old John's Lane Release
Theodore,
I like my whisk(e)y to have a bit of a bite but I don't want it to kick me in the teeth. I consider this to be smooth and light but has enough kick to remind you it is there.
Powers Three Swallow
Brendan,
Very sweet on the palate (almost dessert-like)
Powers Three Swallow
Alexandra,
My favorite Irish whiskey to date, very smooth and very easy to drink.
Powers Gold Label
Michael,
Quite comparable to the Teeling Single Grain but less in spiciness. Taste is great though. Better than a Jameson (well, it depends if you like oakiness because you get a bit more of that in the Jameson). This is indeed a better all day dram than the Jameson for me.

Christopher,
I found it to be a very bourbon-esque Irish whiskey. This is not a complaint, it’s crosses the gap of the step styles very well, and has been a nice way for me to introduce Irish whiskey to my friends who haven’t come over to the dark side yet
Powers Three Swallow
Ronan,
Very drinkable, almost too easy. Smooth as you would expect from Powers, and probably edges out Gold label as my favourite Irish whiskey.

Excellent
Powers 12 Year Old John's Lane Release
Jaakko,
Colour light, not remarkable, doesn’t impress yet. Interesting nose, dates. Actually rather reminds me of Nikka From the Barrel. Bourbony taste, vanilla, sweet, woody in that sickly way. Not completely unpleasant but not for me. The afterglow is pretty long and pleasant though. Some very slight smoky wisps can be inagined being also in there somewhere. Spiral says coffee and dark chocolate so maybe it’s those. I can believe that. Ok, but doesn’t seem like anything special to me and what I get I personally don’t that much fancy.

Ben,
It is good for the price point, but it is not my favorite single pot Irish.

Lawrence,
Slight bite with lingering sting to the back of the throat. Oily spice with vanilla

Stronger flavor that Three Swallows, still very enjoyable.

Fantastic. Enough said.

Very smooth and crisp with a long finish

Unique grapefruit finish, worth exploring
Powers 12 Year Old John's Lane Release
John,
A bit of a continual burn. Doesn’t jog through many flavor notes but what is there I do like.

Jim,
Powers Gold Label has now replaced Jameson as my everyday Irish whiskey.

Too spicy, let’s chili peppers next time

Smooth, vanilla and fruit notes on the nose. I really enjoyed this one.
Powers 12 Year Old John's Lane Release
Robert,
Aroma of a fruit salad. Fruit with a hint of vanilla in the first taste. Adding water really smooths it out. Not bad but not worth the price. Second tasting- sweet and nice but not worth the money.

Martyn,
A nice whiskey, fruity with a hint of vanilla and very smooth.
